PS3 Slim breaks records in Japan

Shifts 150,000 units in three days.

The PS3 Slim has sold over 150,000 units in three days in Japan, marking its highest sales in the region to date.

According to the latest figures from Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, the console sold 150,252 slim units (150,832 units in total) during the period August 31 - September 6, reports Kotaku. Comparing the figures to Media Create data for the week prior, when the console sold just 1040 units, the increase marks a huge leap.

The slim console even outperforms the launch of the original PlayStation 3 when, due to shortage issues in the region, 88,000 consoles were sold in the first two days.

UK data revealed earlier today showed the new slimline console is performing similarly well here with a 999 per cent increase in sales recorded following last week's release.
